A New Spin On Things
Good morning! Hilarious how many of you thought I cheated on my Lenten promise. GEEZ that would have been way better than just buying some fruit at the store….but nope! Still no chocolate until Sunday. 🙂
This morning I set my alarm WAY early for me (5:20am!) to get to a 6am spin class at my gym. Since I am not in race training anymore I’m trying to switch up my work outs and do other forms of cardio. I love spinning and used to do it in college (with Kate! Hi Kate!) so I was excited to try it again.
The class was fantastic! It was so fun to feel like part of a little club again. There were about 8 people in the class and you could tell they were all regulars and joked around. The teacher was upbeat and smiley which made the class fun but still challenging. My only concern is the music…it was sort of rock and roll instrumentals. The beats were good for the class, but sometimes I like being able to rock out to Rihanna and Britney.
One good thing about 6am spin? Plenty of time afterwards for some strength training. I did about 1/2 hour of arm work between free weights and machines and still got to work early. My boss might like this new Spin class too.
This blue top from Banana Republic is one of my all time favorites. I just love that it hangs nicely and has cute puffy sleeves.
But of course I would freeze with no sleeves, so I threw on a pink sweater. It’s a bit much, but maybe all the bright colors will ward of the impending tornadoes and storms we’re supposed to get.
I look identical in both of those pictures except for the sweater. Weird.
I actually haven’t made it yet – I’m about to right after this – but my oatmeal looks pretty much the same each time. Here’s and old one:
Off for a big day of shoe design! Thanks so much for the encouragement to leave my lap top at home and enjoy my quick vacay with the family. I have one guest poster but would still love others if anyone can get them too me super quickly!
Have a great Tuesday!!
